Partner Section: Producers
A great way to earn some money on collateral material
Opensignage offers an open Media Library with royalty-free media that our users can use to fill their playlist. In the Media Library you will find a growing selection of stock video footage, sequences, images and backgrounds. This content can be scheduled in all kinds of playlists and can be used by a variety of branches, companies and organisations.
We are keen to offer as wide a collection of clips as possible for which there will be demand. That’s why we reach out to connect with creative people and stimulate them to make beautiful, interesting, actual and professional content for our Media Library.
So a part of our Media Library will be stocked with producer content. Users can use this content by paying the assigned amout of credits. This amount is determined by the producer himself or herself and will be used as a means of pay.
What can we offer producers?
We offer producers an easy and attractive fixed-price system and free registration to Opensignage.
You are free to display different kinds of content, like video’s, animations, compilations of images and dynamic footage, in the Media Library of Opensignage.
You can use the existing categories as a guideline for this. There is no interest in private holiday or home videos. Your footage should be professionally shot and excellently produced.
